Jung Society of Utah Presents: Introductory and Advanced Techniques for Lucid Dreaming with Robert Waggoner @ Wasatch Retreat and Conference Center
Oct 3 – Oct 4 all-day
Jung Society of Utah Presents: Introductory and Advanced Techniques for Lucid Dreaming with Robert Waggoner @ Wasatch Retreat and Conference Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Join us for a special two-day workshop with dream expert Robert Waggoner at the beautiful Wasatch Retreat and Conference Center in downtown Salt Lake City!

Day 1

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015

Time: 9-4

Workshop on Introductory Techniques for Lucid Dreaming

Your first lucid dream can be an unforgettable experience! Consciously aware within a lucid dream, you may have a sense of lucid euphoria, feeling the potential inherent in this magical state. But what if it only happens once a year? Or worse, the lucid dream ends within seconds of you becoming lucid! In this workshop for lucid dreaming beginners, author Robert Waggoner will distill decades of lucid experience into easily understandable techniques and tips to help you become lucid and stay lucid.

Day 2

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

Time: 9-3pm

Advanced Lucid Dreaming Practices for Healing and Spiritual Growth

Some Buddhist lineages proclaim an action performed in a lucid dream is seven times more powerful than a waking action. Aware within the dreaming mind, you exist in a unique state, where you can focus intent for emotional or physical healing, achieve creative breakthroughs and accelerate your spiritual growth — that is, if you know how. This workshop will cover those advanced techniques and concepts that you need in order to experience the transformative potential of lucid dreaming.

The Aging Mastery Program® @ Sandy Senior Center

The Aging Mastery Program® @ Sandy Senior Center | Sandy | Utah | United States

The National Council on Aging (NCOA) is proud to bring The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) to Utah! In partnership with the Alta View Senior Clinic, Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services is excited to offer it at the Sandy Senior Center this September! It is a 10-week behavior change incentive program for individuals 55+ to master aging. Central to the AMP philosophy is the belief that modest lifestyle changes can produce big results and that people can be empowered and supported to cultivate health and longevity. Equally important, the program encourages mastery – developing sustainable behaviors across many dimensions that will lead to improved health, stronger financial security, and overall well-being. Another key element of the program is the reward system, designed to both motivate and encourage ongoing participation. Weekly guest speakers come to educate and encourage mastery of aging on the following concepts:
Navigating Longer Lives
Exercise and You
Sleep
Healthy Eating and Hydration
Financial Fitness
Medication Management
Advance Planning
Healthy Relationships
Falls Prevention
Community Engagement

Class runs Tuesdays, September 15 – November 17 12:00pm – 1:30pm.
RSVP by September 8 to Sandy Senior Center: (801)561-3265 Limited spots available!
